When I first started teaching classes, I taught all kinds of needlework. I would try to have a variety of classes: tatting, smocking, crazy quilting. I just loved making little smocked dresses! This was when I was still having children and I had hopes of having a girl. But I have 4 boys! The dress pictured above is made of silk dupioni, it was so fun to make!
This is the first little dress I made. It is made out of a sweet pink batiste fabric.
I just loved doing the shadow embroidery on the hem.
This is a sweet dress that I made in a bigger size just because I loved the pink tulip fabric. This Easter weekend just reminded me of the sweet smocked dresses I used to make. I'll just save them and maybe I'll have a granddaughter someday!
Talk to you later,
